Re: To fish or not to fish that is the question

Only reason lakes are getting closed is because no one is adhering to shelter in place order.Stay home. I want to go fishing also but staying home. Slow the spread. 600 people died in Italy in 24 hours

Re: BBT - News Alert- Tournament Status

This is not hysteria, You guys need to take this more seriously. It will not be over in a few weeks .If anything its going to get worse.Not a fan of cancelling events but if thats what it takes to stop the spread than thats what should happen.

Re: Ranger or Nitro

Depends if you plan on keeping or selling in a few years. Rangers hold their value better. New Nitros are real nice boats but harder to sell used.

Re: Best Bass Boat

You are going to get different answers from everyone . Find a boat you like with low hours . Alot of good boats out there. some ride better than others and some are more stable fishing platforms.
For me it would have to have a 36 volt system and a Mercury

Re: Bass Angler Transitioning from Boats to Kayaks

I have both. No need to spend 5k as there are plenty of kayaks out there under 1000.00
I can only handle being in the kayak for about 2-3 hrs and have to get out and stretch.
We take 3 kayaks when we take the travel trailer.Lots of waters that dont allow boats to go to.
